Why Laurie McConville chose Whistler

I choose to buy this home because it is so unique. It's so private & quiet. I love the grand wood burning fireplace and the log post and beams. There's only 6 units in the building and the village is only 5-7 minute drive. You get the best of both worlds. Taluswood's is a very special place.

Special

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for a wonderful weekend. As five adults and a dog we managed just fine, small as it is. The open fire in the lounge was perfect for an evening of games, and the kitchen adequately stocked with kitchenware to make the meals special. One more dinning room chair would have been nice but we used a chair from the unexpectedly large and friendly deck. The quiet side street meant one slept well and our bed was just the best. I just can't give this 5 stars as the bathroom faucet needs repair as does the window crank in the bedroom. A special place.

The location of Taluswood is terrific. Set in the trees, the condo provides a perfect backdrop to a restful ski vacation. Away from the crowds and an easy ski in/ ski out location for our family of five and dog. Thank you. Love the hot tub.

Lots of extras that you don't get in most Whistler village condos

  • 5 of 5

Love this place. Private garage parking at no extra charge plus 2nd car parking available in the guest parking area next to the building. The Taluswood area is much quieter than in-village lodges, no 2am drunks yelling in the pedestrian zone or 5am garbage trucks to disturb our slumbers.

Great layout for skiers... Two mud room areas at the front door, one inside plus a cubby outside the door. The inside mud room has a heater below the rack which ensured that our gear dried overnight. (no soggy mitts in the morning) The condo is spacious with large master bedroom, living areas, and deck. Heads up that the second bedroom is small and windowless with just enough room for the bunk beds and small dresser. Fine for kids, but pretty tight for adults.

Kitchen has decent pots and pans, new small appliances and household-sized offerings of salt, pepper, and sugar (rather than single packets stolen from a diner like some places). If you're a cook, you might bring your own knife and high temp spatula. Aside from that, it's a cook's kitchen. Lots of little extras throughout the unit like a French press, detergent for the clothes washer, decent shampoo in the shower, a radio with an iPod dock... small things in themselves, but they add up to hominess.

Tip #1 Entrance to the unit is through the glass door at the center of the building, then down the stairs.

Tip #2 The ski-back run starts just above the green Olympic rings off Lower Dave Murray. It's pretty long. Keep following past the flats ALL THE WAY to the bottom. Take your skis off to cross a small parking area, walk to the right side of the units in front of you, put your skis back on for the last short bit which puts you out next to the garages and pool area. (saves 5+ minutes walking out to Nordic Dr. and back)

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Cozy and homey, ski in and out a big bonus! Wood burning fireplace instead of gas, NICE!!! The master bedroom had the the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in when it comes to hotels and rental condos, seriously super comfortable! Great after a long day of skiing. The manager was very helpful and quick to respond if we had any questions. We are already looking for a date in the Spring to come back. Hoping to get this exact unit again :-)

Cozy little spot in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Took a guys trip out to Whistler for some skiing. It was a first for each of us. The condo was great for us. The ski-out location was only a 3-4 min walk up the hill, then ski right to creekside gondola. The ski-out location was a little tricky to find, but just stay skier's right on Dave Murray Downhill and you'll see it. Its just up from where Nordic Dr becomes visible. My only minor complaint would be that the furniture doesn't quite fit the space, especially the dresser in the master bedroom. Some of the things we really liked were the heated floors, location, and access to the hot tub. The back desk looked like it would be really nice in warmer weather too.

As advertised. Great location and good for a small family.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we thought the property was very good and as advertised. The location has great access to Creekside although the ski in and ski out requires a little effort to figure out the first time through.
